Customer Review

on 3 July 2007
Having spent much time in Istanbul and being a fan of the city, I wasn't sure what to expect from this book initially. However, I found the author's insight into the city intriguing and enticing. His poetic style of writing, as he parallels the story of his family's misfortunes to the misfortunes of Istanbul, brings the reader to delight in the melancholic beauty of this city.

Whilst his understanding of Istanbul is sometimes too reliant on his own experiences for the reader to fully appreciate, his style of writing nevertheless allows you to enjoy this as a great alternative guide to the city.
